Charges dismissed in murder case - it was self defense

L.A. Daily News - NewsA case that should have never been brought to court was dismissed.
Capital murder charges have been dismissed against a 23-year-old North Hills man after a judge determined he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot two men during a fight outside a Northridge nightclub, officials said Friday.
The 2 people who were shot had attacked the group he was with, and had started to draw weapons of their own when he acted.

The fact that he was charged at all, is evidence of bias on the part of prosecutors - at least in CA. Thankfully, the judge has some comon sense, and dismissed the charges. [via KABA]
